Warrens did not disappoint! The restaurant has plenty of seating and an amazing view of the water. Our server was friendly and attentive and brought us our drinks quickly. The cocktail/beer menu is large and has something for everyone. I could eat at their large...salad bar everyday if given the option. The assortment was large, fresh and delicious. In addition to the fresh vegetables they also had choices of other delicious sides. They supplied plastic gloves and rotated out utensils often to abide by the safety restrictions which made me feel comfortable. Next time I would opt into trying some of their seafood options because my husbands stuffed lobster roll made me jealous.More

This place was the first stop on our Portsmouth/Kittery Fish and Chips tour and it was the best. We ordered the Haddock Chunks fried dinner and it was amazing. Not greasy at all, fresh as in caught that day, cooked perfectly, and it came with...a trip to the huge salad bar, baked potato, and even a full loaf of their famous Pumpkin bread; all for just $20 or so. Since our tour is over, I can honestly say that you will not find a better, fresher, or tastier deal on fish and chips anywhere in the area. That includes, Robert’s, The Surf, River House, and Weathervane. All of them were great, just not as good as Warren’s (see my other reviews), except Weathervane. We could not even eat the Weathervane fish and chips. We had to return it. It was old smelly fish that tasted borderline turned, which was very surprising.More

The food was great! Lobster in so many ways! The house dressing was delicious! There was not salad bar but you get to make your own salad! I got lobster tails and claws. The lobster was fresh and sweet! The service was great! There was...a nice ocean view outside.More

Outdoor seating only, so weather must be nice for eating outside. Great picnic tables. with lots of room. The lobster and clam chowder are great! Just do takeout if the weather is bad. Definitely will be back on next trip!

First timers at this place. We are staying in Ogunquit, figured we would drive down to Portmouth and eat. Was well worth the trip! They let you pick from the salad bar on a sheet of paper ( pic attached) , which I think is...better than actually walking up and having a bunch of people touching the serving spoons and tongs.. anyway.. FoJ was amazing.. just totally amazing. The blueberry chipolte boneless wings were just ... I can't even... a small 0otion of lightly battered, mist chicken in this amazing sauce. ( not too much) The Captains platters were off the hook. Lightly battered, crispy and perfectly cooked. Add some deep fried lobster claws for $5 . The pics are worth 1,000 words. We will be back! PS Do NOT forget to take home some pumpkin bread. ♡More

We did not find the food to be exceptional. Was there 18 years ago and the place has not changed but the quality of food decreased. The COVID restrictions eliminated the best item which was a salad bar.

Food was ok at best. We had loster roll and lobster mac and cheese. Joshua was great, very friendly and attentive. Make sure you turn your ringer off on your phone, or you will be told to turn it down.
